Happy trees indeed

An April Fool’s Day joke, or a quirky tribute to a famous pubcasting painter? You decide. On Thursday, the Gallery Bar on Manhattan’s Lower East Side is hosting “Beat the Devil Out of It!: A Bob Ross Tribute.” As the notice says, “Grab a paintbrush and prepare to make some happy little trees.” There’s a Bob Ross lookalike contest, and a performance by the Titanium White Hot Dancers, a, ahem, “Ross–themed dance troupe.” Costumes are strongly encouraged, so be sure to bring your Afro wig.
